Avengers: Endgame will be having 3 hours of runtime. And Marvel is reportedly considering having an intermission due to the lengthy runtime of the movie.
This information is not confirmed by Marvel or Disney. So it’s not official yet. But according to Alan Cerny, of ComingSoon.net and the podcast Matinee Heroes -Marvel is planning to add intermission in their movie Avengers: Endgame.
He wrote the following words in his tweet published on February 5, 2019.
Rumor has it Marvel is considering an intermission for AVENGERS: ENDGAME as it is currently clocking at three hours. Bring it on. I love intermissions. Makes the movies that have them feel very epic. Besides, a pee break would be nice.
Here’s the tweet.

People in western countries are not much familiar with intermissions. I live in India and here all the movies have intermissions. Even the movies that don’t have intermissions, the theatres cut the movie halfway through for intermission because people here are habitual for a break in the movie.
Upon intermission people instantly rush to get the popcorn, soft drinks or some other snacks. And some people went to urinate.
I am 32 years old and in India, I have never seen a single movie in my life without an intermission. So, I don’t mind the intermission but actually, prefer it because of the 3-hour runtime.
Now it’s not confirmed that Marvel is going to do it in the western countries. But whether they add intermission or not, in India there will be one added.
The response to Cerny’s tweet has been a mixture of negativity and positivity. Some people are saying they could watch the Avengers movie without an intermission even if it’s runtime is 5-hours long.
Now for me, that’s insane, but some people are down for it.
Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame hits the theatres on April 26, 2019.
